Unfortunately, the news was confirmed in the afternoon: the 19-year-old died in hospital – his initials ZEA – who for several hours had been fighting for his life at the Civile, protagonist in spite of himself in the terrible accident on Sunday morning on the A4 motorway in the territory of Castegnato, in the direction of Venice. Resident in Arzignano, in the province of Vicenza, he was in a car (a Lancia Y) together with four other friends, also all in hospital, at the Poliambulanza, but fortunately not in serious condition.
For him, however, the sad fate was consummated. He held on to life as long as he could, until his heart stopped beating. The dynamics are being examined by the agents of the Traffic Police of Seriate. Initially it was thought of a skid against the cusp that divides the lanes at a junction.
The violent impact with the barrier
Instead, the car carrying the 5 friends went off the road in a straight line, crashing into the concrete barrier that separates the two motorway directions. Extremely violent impact, even if at a limited speed: the car was largely destroyed, and the occupants were stuck between the metal sheets (and freed by the Fire Brigade).
On site various ambulances in addition to the automedica, the fire brigade and the Polstrada. There was no need to close the motorway section, but only the third lane to allow rescue and safety operations. However, there was no lack of slowdowns and queues. But there is nothing left but the tragedy of a boy of just 19 years. The body is at the disposal of the judicial authority.
